With a little over 3 months since the new generation consoles have released, it seems Microsoft is taking extra steps to gain some leverage after numbers have shown they are being outsold by Sony. On the web forums Neogaf, a highly respected member by the name of ntkrnl has come out with some very valuable information regarding Xbox One exclusives, Xbox One hardware, and Xbox one pricing, all of of which you can find here.
Posted by another member shinobi602, here is the content of ntkrnl’s post that has created quite a shock in gaming world.
“If you’re joining the thread then this Bish-verified insider ntkrnl has been UNLEASING THE BOMBS.
Here’s all the stuff so far he’s said in this thread:
- Forza Horizon: “Fall 2014, probably September. Super sexy weather system and… shit tons of co-op/social stuff. 1080P and open-world, so you can road trip with your bros.”
- White Xbone incoming.
- Why all the leaks? Scared you might get caught? “I am incapable of fear. Plus, this is such exciting stuff, and me talking about it ahead of time isn’t going to hurt anything, truthfully. We’re all chomping at the bit for it to come out. This is not bad. “
- Halo Anniversary 2 will be 1080p, iffy on the 60fps, maybe not.
- Quantum Break is Holiday 2014
- Multiplayer confirmed for HA2, same devs as Halo Anniversary.
- Sunset Overdrive is Fall 2014
- Is not Phil Spencer
- Black Tusk cancelled project was called “Shangheist.” May have involved stealing stuff from the Chinese (though I think that may have been a reference to the name and maybe not the gameplay? Not sure…)
- Fable Legends is Summer 2015
- Halo 2 Anniversary includes beta for Halo 5
- Gears of War will probably need a 2.5 year dev time.
- First Titanfall DLC is 45 days from release, then another one 120 days from release.
- No Crackdown 3 news this year most likely, since it’s a 2016 title.
- A list w/dates of the rest of the Tier 2 and Tier 3 countries that Xbone will release in this year.
- No info/idea on what Rare’s up to, sadly.
- $399 XB1 this year? “Maybe one without an Optical Disc Drive.”
I’m heading out so people update this list accordingly…”
For anyone who owns an Xbox One, this news might make some readers unhappy as some of the biggest exclusives that are Crackdown 3, Halo 5 and the new Gears of War title are 1 and 2 years away respectively. However, for those that do not own an Xbox One, it might just be a good time to wait as Forza Horizon, Halo 2 Anniversary, and a white Xbox One for $399 could be out by the end of the year.
